The dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the close of World War I allowed the Slovaks to join the closely related Czechs to form Czechoslovakia. Following the chaos of World War II, Czechoslovakia became a Communist nation within Soviet-ruled Eastern Europe. Soviet influence collapsed in 1989 and Czechoslovakia once more became free. The Slovaks and Czechs agreed to separate peacefully on January 1, 1993. Slovakia joined both NATO and the EU in the spring of 2004.
With a population of around 5,400,000 Slovakia’s modern evangelical church is a very small minority. Together, the membership of all modern evangelical churches is only about 10,000 people. This means that less then 0.2% of the population are part of these churches. Historical Evangelicals (Lutherans) make up 6.9% of church community and represent the largest Protestant denomination. Together, these two groups make up the majority of the 11% total Slovak Protestant population.
